Counselling Psychotherapy Consultancy in Farnham - Surrey & Hampshire

Welcome, and thank you for visiting.

I am based in Farnham, Surrey, which is ten miles from Guildford, and also easily accessible from the Alton and Aldershot areas in Hampshire.

  • I provide counselling, psychotherapy, mediation and lifestyle consultation for individuals, couples and young people,
  • design and facilitate creative workshops and seminars on themes of self-development,
  • offer ongoing dream-processing groups,
  • and am qualified to provide counselling/psychotherapy supervision & consultancy for professionals whose clinical casework requires this support.

    Skilled support is appropriate at times of stress or distress such as:

  • difficulties in relationships or the ending of a relationship
  • disagreements with family, friends or people at work that seem unresolvable
  • sudden unemployment
  • bereavement
  • facing the unexpected
  • coping with added responsibilities
  • bullying
  • nightmares
  • panic attacks

    or to ease personal experiences that cause you problems like:

  • shyness
  • depression and despair
  • questions of identity
  • re-activated traumatic childhood experiences
  • extreme moods and resulting stress
  • a repeated theme in your life
  • lack of meaning

    I listen and inquire in ways that allow you to explore your perception of yourself and your relationships with the help of metaphor and play. We create a space together in which fresh understanding can happen towards your greater wellbeing.


    Ashen really helped me to feel differently about how a complex family relationship affects me, through skillful questioning and acknowledgement. Her gentle, intelligent approach has provided me with a safe opportunity to become more comfortable with long-standing issues. R, Farnham

    Through Ashen's subtle questions, and powerful guided imageries, I gained another perspective on what was happening in my life. As my attitude towards myself changed, it positively affected my relationships. There is another dimension to my life now. L, Croydon

    Working with Ashen was the best money I ever spent, she's worth ten times more than that. She helped me to become a better person. I., Guildford

    I could not understand my anger, and assumed I was to blame when my mother felt upset. Ashen introduced a simple map to me, which made me understand the role I was playing for my mother, and others. We explored how the pattern of my behaviour had been established from early on. Understanding the difference between the garb, and the core of my personality, changed all. I now make conscious choices. P. Alton
